Hanako (はな子 Hanako) is the adopted dog of the Inuyashiki Family.
Hanako is a female Akita Inu dog. Her fur is short and she has a fox-like face, ears, and legs.
Hanako was a stray dog who lived nearby the Inuyashiki house. Ichiro found her in a box one evening after his day of work and decided to take her.
In the manga, Hanako was adopted by Inuyashiki from a dog shelter instead of finding her nearby a river.
- Hanako sleeps in Ichiro's room because he feels bad about letting her outside at night.
- Hanako's name "はな or 花 Hana" means flower and "子 ko" means child.
